TrustMark launches Homeowners Guide to Retrofit

TrustMark has a created a guide to retrofitting, designed for consumers. It aims to  clarify and explain what retrofit means, how it works and its benefits.

CEO Simon Ayers says: “Retrofit is a well-used term that’s been around a long time and understood by many. For homeowners though, it’s a relatively new term and getting to grips with what it actually means and the options and benefits open to them can be a little overwhelming.

“We felt we could help improve their understanding, demystify some of the jargon and technical terms used and assist homeowners to understand how they can benefit from retrofitting their home.”

There are round 28 million homes in the UK and the average property has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating of D or below, says TrustMark. “To get the best result from installing any energy efficiency measures and to avoid making an existing problem worse, they should be properly planned, well-thought through and carried out by skilled, technically competent tradespeople who commit to high standards of workmanship and protection for their customers,” says Simon.
